Poetry by Jamie McKenzie

No trace

I delete you now
Every message
Every photo
Every word
You ever sent

I erase you
For good
For better or for worse

I forget you
Pretend you never happened
Wipe the slate clean

I shred the dreams
Bury the wishes
Unsing the songs
Unwrite the poems

Off to oblivion
I send you
And exiled
Your memory is obliterated
The flame extinguished
Ashes to ashes
Dust to dust
There is no trace of you
No reminder
Nothing at all

Just this angry
Raging poem
And a heart that cannot even weep
